The dancing teacher Anastasia falls in love with the smart theatre agent Jud. He likes her, too, but does not want to give up his solo life at all. Thus she plans a trap for him... Written by
In 1951 star Larry Parks was among the first Hollywood personalities to admit that he had been a member of the Communist Party, in testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee. He was subsequently among those blacklisted in Hollywood, and the release of this film was delayed as a result. See more »
In my opinion, this was one of Elizabeth Taylor's best movies she ever starred in. In this film she was young, talented and even funny. I was fortunate enough to have caught this movie while it was playing on Turner Classic Movies, and fell in love with the movie. When I first saw it coming on Turner Classic Movies, I was hesitant to watch it, as I have not been a huge fan of Elizabeth Taylor's movies and don't normally follow her films or her career. This movie was better than my expectations and when it ended I wanted to watch it again. I have even tried to watch a few more films that Elizabeth Taylor starred in. I have been trying to catch another showing of the film ever since. The movie is not available on DVD and was only released on VHS back in 1993 so it is hard to find for home viewing. I hope that they release the movie onto DVD or Blu-Ray DVD in the near future and until then I hope that Turner Classic Movies continues to show it once in a while. I do think that the movie deserves more credit than it has received. If you get a chance to watch it, you will not be disappointed.
